Bomberman is an incredibly popular franchise with a long history. The first game came out in 1983 and since then has garnered a significant fan following. The latest entry in the franchise is a Nintendo Switch exclusive called "Super Bomberman R". It's been many years since a Bomberman game came out so gamers were understandably excited for this release. Unfortunately, players on Xbox One felt left out because they haven't received a new game since the Xbox 360 got Bomberman Live: Battlefest in 2010.
Today, a Microsoft Store listing for Super Bomberman R appeared for Xbox One. The game is expected to launch on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Unfortunately, the preorder link doesn't work at the moment so we were unable to ascertain the price. Those who preorder the title gain the additional "Golden Vic Viper" and "8 Shiny Bomberman Brothers" characters.
Super Bomberman R allows you to play alone or with a friend in Story Mode, in a bunch of different levels. The game also contains the classic Battle Mode where you can play with up to eight players locally or online. Lastly, the new Grand Prix Mode focuses on teamwork just as much as individual skill.
If you love the Bomberman series, be sure to check out Super Bomberman R on Xbox One. We'll update you as soon as we have a price point or the preorder goes live.
Updated March 15, 2018: Super Bomberman R is now available for preorder on Xbox One for $39.99.
